I don’t know, I’d hardly describe the NE Providence Channel as “shallow”, Dave… Don’t have a chart handy at the moment, but I’m gonna guess it probably averages somewhere between a mile or two deep, for most of the 40 miles or so between the tip of Great Abaco and N Eleuthera… If he’d run for the shelter of Spanish Wells, or Hole in the Wall or Sandy Point, he probably wouldn’t have come on soundings again until being in the lee of Royal Island, or Great Abaco, or whatever other option he might have chosen


I understand that John. I have been there few times myself. I would have stayed out just the same and continued southward or hove to.
